Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets have added some catching depth by signing Taylor Teagarden to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Teagarden was once considered a pretty solid catching prospect, but now he’s 30 years with a lengthy injury history and just 163 total games in the majors.

He profiles as merely a backup at this point and will likely compete with Anthony Recker and Juan Centeno to serve as rookie Travis d’Arnaud’s caddy.
